Each collection pays tribute to a key trend that is currently influencing and inspiring designers across our industry.
MA D R I D : N AT U R E - L E D L U X U RY
This new wet-green® collection from Spain features a palette of rich, saturated earth tones. All of the inherent markings and unique characteristics in each hide really come to life in this leather’s brilliant polished surface. Additionally, it’s eye-catching color transparency provides depth and dimension that immediately draws you in. Please note that once upholstered, it’s surface offers a less shiny and more matte aesthetic. Madrid, as well as Eden, Terra and Aspen, are all offerings that can be connected to the nature-led luxury trend. The luxury of having time to turn to nature to relax and recharge from the demands of a technology-dominated age has created a demand for materials that can be used to create a more accessible, nature-inspired sanctuary indoors. The focus here is on the simplicity, integrity and purity of materials of the highest quality that can provide a canvas for connection to nature.
J A KA R TA M E TA L L I C : MOD E R N DAY M E TA L L I C
In addition to launching two new colors in our Jakarta collection, we’ve also dramatically dressed up three existing colors of Jakarta with eye-catching metallic tipping: Jakarta Metallic Sand Gold, Jakarta Metallic Cream Gold and Jakarta Metallic Chocolate Gold. These three Jakarta Metallics, as well as our Notting Hill Metallic, Kipling Metallic and some of our metallic transfer collections, can all be showcased during presentations as options that will appeal to the growing use of metallics as modern day neutrals. Associated with this spring’s refreshing runway trend of optimism and positivity, these hues radiate dimension and offer a subtle shift in the perception of texture and color.
MON T B L A N C : OUR MOST CAPTIVATING CANVAS FOR COLOR
With its rich, saturated color and arresting transparency, Mont Blanc offers an aesthetic that transcends trends and radiates depth and dimension. Its natural characteristics are a beacon of conversation, providing a refreshingly real, connective thread for visual harmony within a room. We’ve added three new shades of blue (Nile, Larkspur and Adriatic) because of the continuing popularity of blue in design schemes. We also added a more grounded, mature pink (Tangier) and an earthy dark pink-influenced purple shade (Orchid) since the demand for more feminine colors in our collections continues to grow. All five new colors were inspired by the vibrant color palettes across Rajasthan, India.
COT T SWA L D : TAC T I L E E X P E R I E N C E
We’ve designed seven new vibrant and striking colors of Cottswald to reflect the growing popularity of Nubuck in upholstery applications. It’s soft, velvety hand and lavish tracking effect exude subtle sophistication and elegance. When upholstered, the leather’s luxurious nap draws in light and creates a soft glow. Cottswald, as well as our Dauphine, Whistler and Satin Suede collections, are all offerings that can be connected to the tactile experience trend. Marked by soft and seductive textures, this trend is driven by materials that are designed to elevate the everyday experience and breathe new life into the luxury landscape. The visual and tactile opulence of these materials encourage sensory discovery and enhance environments with their rich and complex sensuality.
A Class Act
Bright Lights, Big City
D uring our recent visit to Altfield Hong Kong, we had the pleasure of hosting an educational presentation about leather for students from Hong Kong’s Insight School of Interior Design. Founded by Parisian interior designer and art historian Eve Mercier, Insight offers its students hands-on experience and real world exposure to all aspects of interior design so that they are equipped with creativity, practicality and all of the necessary tools to succeed in Asia’s discerning design market. Courses focus on artisan insight, craftsmanship excellence and knowledge sharing via atelier visits, craftsmanship lectures and skills demonstration. During the presentation, we gave the students a general overview about leather and the leather industry and then dived down into an interactive discussion about our portfolio and the different types of leather we offer. Although all of the information generated a lively dialogue, the students (and Altfield staff) especially appreciated the Types of Leather and Wood Grain Comparison reference tools Whitney created to assist in our leather education initiative.
M oore & Giles and Altfield HK recently welcomed some of our best clients in the territory to the China Club, a stylishly swanky members-only club located on the top three floors of the old Bank of China building in Hong Kong. Featuring an abundant assortment of contemporary Chinese art and a lush library overflowing with books on China and Chinese culture, it exudes an eclectic, 1930’s Shanghai tea house vibe that is complemented by a culture of service that considers entertaining to be an art. While enjoying Hong Kong’s dramatic skyline from the club’s patio, we toasted the people and projects that have built up our brand in the territory and beyond before moving inside to enjoy the chef’s superb Cantonese cuisine. – –

• VOC compliance is required to receive a Declare label– emissions are ingredients that off-gas and can accumulate in a building over time. Our products meet the CDPH (California Department of Public Health) requirements for VOC emissions. California’s requirement is more stringent than any other VOC test out there.
With the launch of Madrid we now have four leather
collections that have received a Declare label by the
International Living Future Institute (ILFI).
So, what does this mean? This means that Aspen, Terra, Eden and Madrid are Declare labeled, Red List Free leathers that will contribute to a LEED project’s material credits. The “Red List” is a list of 800+ chemicals that have been deemed hazardous to health and human safety. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. For designers who are working on LEED projects, this is huge because these projects are required to have 20 permanently installed products from 5 manufacturers that have a chemical inventory of .1%. Declare asks for an inventory of everything at .01% or greater which means that Declare is more stringent than what LEED is asking for. What does permanently installed mean? – anything that is affixed to the building (walls, drawer pulls, etc). If not permanently installed, you can calculate this in a different way (for furniture). Project teams should know this and understand how to calculate this. What is a Declare label? | It is essentially a nutrition facts label of transparency. • Declare was created for LBC (Living Building Challenge) projects. • There are over 1,000 Declare labels as of today. • Products are inventoried by listing any and all ingredients that exist in a product in levels of 100ppm (.01%) or more – all of these chemicals must be listed. • Cannot contain any Red List Ingredients. • Red List (list of hazardous chemicals) – 21 individual chemical groupings – 800 different chemicals

A fter one and a half years of diligently courting contract furniture leader Steelcase, Moore and Giles is proud to announce its first graded-in contract furniture program.
On April 16th, Moore and Giles entered into an “Elite Partnership” with the Grand Rapids based company, to make our natural leathers now accessible to the contract market. Going forward, both Mont Blanc and Terra will be graded-in options on all Steelcase upholstered furniture. This relationship marks the first graded-in program with a leather company for Steelcase, and the first contract graded-in partnership for Moore & Giles. Additionally, with the introduction of Terra, Steelcase is the first manufacturer to launch a sustainable “Declare Label” leather, suitable for L.E.E.D. projects.
We are excited to be a part of this innovative, new movement in the contract landscape. The market is changing and contract designers are seeking more natural, authentic, and sustainable materials, making Moore & Giles the perfect partner.
See how our leather is now showcased on the Steelcase Web site via the link below:
